Skin Creation - Logo Alignment
« on: February 24, 2019, 06:25:45 PM »
is there a sneaky/quicker way to align logos on paint skins over various parts?
The bike I'm creating a skin for has a long screen, that has a number board plastered over it, and some parts overlap w/the fairing. I was wondering if theres a quicker way to align them, or if its just trial and error?

The best way I found is to use the Wireframe.

Keep it activated when saving the skin and use it to make your adjustments. There is no "easy" way of doing it, unfortunately. :'(

By the way, Great looking skin!

As I can't seem to find a template for this bike I don't have access to wireframe sadly. :( So I've just had to keep moving it and resizing it, and rinse and repeat. Takes up a load of time, hence why I asked.

Its the WSBK 2017 version by IMT. Only available template I could find was for the Kawak on their IMT database

That's the only one i got as well

Message Blackheart he may be able to help.

If not then i would suggest overlaying a grid onto the skin then use that

The issue is the fact that the screen and the livery are 2 seperate files, and are different sizes, so a direct cut and paste job isn't good enough for it :/ just got to spend some time on the alignment for it really. Nothing that can't be fixed, just seems like a bit of a hassle and an awkward way of doing things.

Basing it off these liveries which are pretty lovely if I should say so. The more I look at them the more I like them

Sorry, should have explained better. When there isn't a wireframe available, I use a generic grid overlay on both the templates, scale up so they are a similar size and then work from that. It doesn't line up but it certainly helps on sizing

I know it's not as good as the wireframe but when modders wouldn't supply them that the way I used to do it :P

@Blackheart- Thanks mate  ;D
